The Bourne LegacyThe Expendables 2
It's rare that a sequel trumps the original, but The Expendables 2 manages to do just that, with a steady stream of one-liners and welcome, weathered faces, as well as a few new ingredients. E2 seems even more self-aware of its own silliness, especially with Jean-Claude Van Damme as the villain (named Vilain, of course), and Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger popping up in smaller roles alongside Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture. Two new additions to the crew seem to throw everyone for a loop in one way or another. Liam Hemsworth shows up as Bill the Kid, a sniper who left the military after a raid in Afghanistan went horribly wrong. Nan Yu joins the team as Maggie, who is apparently the only person who can disarm the safe that holds whatever secret thing Church (Bruce Willis) has sent them to retrieve. And if the Expendables don't get her back alive, Church will make them pay, because even though Maggie is some sort of multilingual computer genius with a vicious roundhouse, she's a lady. The Expendables 2 isn't any sort of action classic; it is like writer/director/star Stallone threw a whole bunch of ideas at the wall to see which would stick, then added massive amounts of weapons and the occasional hand-to-hand combat. It is popular, but it is definitely not the kind of awesome action-er that the stars were able to make 10 or 20 years ago.
